Thoughts from Mike Lombardi... - [Full Article]

- Troy Smith was the other Heisman Trophy winner in the Rams-49ers game. He has proven in the last few weeks that he is deserving of being the starter and the 49ers seem to believe in him and rally around him. He protects the ball, makes good throws and gives the 49ers some hope for the remaining seven games. Owner Jed York might be proven correct with his predication of San Francisco winning the NFC West.

- I was told by a reliable source that Titans QB Vince Young did miss treatment last week and Friday meetings. The feeling in the Titans building is that he is extremely unreliable. His work ethic will need to improve if he is going to turn his career around. Young has not endeared himself to teammates, who know the real story about his work ethic. He did not even try to work out before Sunday's game, just accepting his number two status. He then showed, when he had to play when Kerry Collins got hurt, he was more than capable. The Titans need Young to grow up fast, and stop making excuses.

- We now know how former Lions receiver Mike X. Williams became a first-round pick. He never showed these skills before, but is the real deal in Seattle.

- It is a really smart move by the Jets to use Shonn Greene more because LaDainian Tomlinson is not the same running back now as he was earlier in the year.
